E-Z-GO teams with Kevin Harvick Inc. to Sponsor No. 33 Chevrolet Silverado
E-Z-GO, a Textron (NYSE:TXT) Company, announced that it will sponsor the No. 33 Chevrolet Silverado driven by veteran NASCAR driver Ron Hornaday and owned by Kevin Harvick Inc., in seven NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races through the remainder of the 2010 season. The Silverado will promote E-Z-GO’s first street-legal vehicle, the E-Z-GO 2Five, now available at select dealerships across the country. The 2Five has a top speed of up to 25 mph and can be titled and operated by licensed drivers on most public roads with posted speed limits of 35 mph or less. “We are excited to grow our partnership with Kevin Harvick Inc. and Ron Hornaday, and take advantage of this unique opportunity to promote the 2Five,” said Kevin Holleran, president of E-Z-GO. “The KHI trucks have been very successful on the track with E-Z-GO, and I know that Ron Hornaday will continue that success and take the No. 33 E-Z-GO 2Five Chevrolet Silverado to Victory Lane.” Hornaday is a Truck Series veteran and the only four-time series champion. To date, Hornaday has collected 45 Truck Series victories, more than any other driver in the series. He has a total of 25 poles, 127 top-five and 184 top-10 finishes. “I’m really excited to have E-Z-GO join the No. 33 Truck Series team,” Hornaday said. “E-Z-GO’s schedule of races hit several good tracks for me. Phoenix is one of my favorite places on the current Truck Series schedule. It is the closest track to my hometown of Palmdale, California. I have always had good success there and I’m looking forward to taking KHI and E-Z-GO back to Victory Lane.” Team co-owner Kevin Harvick echoed Hornaday’s sentiments. “We’re very happy to team E-Z-GO and Ron Hornaday for seven races throughout this season,” Harvick said. “Atlanta Motor Speedway was an awesome experience for me, winning my first Truck Series event there with E-Z-GO as the sponsor of our No. 2 truck and the race. I know that Ron will do a great job. I’m very happy with the E-Z-GO vehicle that I won during that race and I believe that the added exposure E-Z-GO will get from their association with the No. 33 Truck Series team will only lead to more fans riding their E-Z-GO vehicles around the camp grounds.” To follow Ron Hornaday’s successes on the track, visit www.ronhornaday.com.
